Look at what we made at Kari's!

I had such a fun time last night at a workshop at Kari M's place after work. She took us through a tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers on making a Hallowe'en Treat Box with Card. I brought it to work to show all my friends and one of my customers took a picture of it! I spent time trying to fit different sizes of gum and candy in the gift box. We did make another card but I just loved making this project. Thank you Kari! If any of you want to see Kari's work just look at her blog on the right hand side of my page. Her blog's name is Vancouver Stamping Grounds! Check it out and you will be amazed!

SUO Challenges #28 Fall Colours

Hi All,

I was inspired this morning by my Cajun Craze ink and my Chocolate Chip craft ink, and my SU "Holiday Best" stamp set! When I saw the online challenge on"Fall Colours" for SUO I was excited, and quickly started to make this card before going to work. I just finished it a couple of minutes ago after a tasty roast beef dinner with my hubby!
On white card stock, I stamped my sentiment "Give Thanks" from "Holiday Best" with my Cajun Craze ink. Then I stamped my image using the Chandlier like stamp from the SU "Bliss" set. I used my Chocolate Chip craft ink then I used my heat tool and heat and stick powder ( which had a few flecks of  SU silver glitter in it from another project...oops!). I then used my heat tool and heated up clear embossing powder on the image to get a lovely look! I put one of the glimmer brads from the Brights Collection in the middle to jazz it up a little more.
On the left hand side, I used some of my Victoria Crochet Trimto make a fun ribbon and used tombow to glue on a neutrals button from my SU neutral buttons and put a darling little pearl in the middle. I used my Beautiful Wings embosslit to cut out those little butterflies in the right hand corner. I sponged some Cajun Craze on the butterfly underneath and put another little black pearl on the smaller white butterfly. The orange and light brown layers underneath are some SU DSP (Designer Series Paper) on a card made from textured card stock. On the inside, I stamped the daisies from the set "Upsy Daisy" in Cajun craze. I lightly put the ink on to get a slightly faded look. I hope that all of you love this card just as much as I do. I know I have made a great card when I want to keep it just for ME! There are just some cards that are hard to even think of giving away, but in the end I do! Hope you all have a great week. Happy Stampin'

Stamping 411 Sat Sketch Challenge #221

Hi All,

This week went by so fast because it was so busy! Eventhough it was hectic, I had time to make a card for a Stamping Royalty Challenge and then made this card for the Stamping 411 Challenge! I decided to create a new Thank You card using my Music Notes Stampin' Up Wheel and my new set of SU Neutral craft inks! I had so much fun. I used some SU paper kicking around in my scrap pile and used a fresh green sheet from my SU DSP (Designer Series Paper) called Designer Series Paper Patterns Pack- In Colour. It's a 6x6 book of patterned paper with 60 sheets with 12 sheets of each five colours! Very cool indeed! My sentiment is from the Hodgepodge Happiness set which I think may be retired, but I am not sure about that! I used one of my neutral buttons with a littlest butterfly from my Beautiful Wings Embosslit! So cute! A little black pearl in the middle of the butterfly completes my card. I used my Tearing Edge to tear up the edges and rubbed the edges of each layer with craft ink to get that distressed look. I think it is a nice card to give to either a man or a woman! Happy Stampin'
